It's not pretty. And it's not necessarily meant to scare you. It's merely reality — and one that we should all be aware of. At the very least, this video — a clip from the 2011 documentary "Samsara" — is enough to reinforce omnivores' motivation to eat locally, or consider a meatless lifestyle.
The clip takes an artistic approach, using no dialogue, only eery background music accompanied by the images of assembly lines throughout each step of the meat's journey. There's nothing "extreme" about this video — no scare tactic designed to change your beliefs. It's just six minutes of a typical day at meat factories, which is why it's so unnerving.
It's safe to say we'll be eating salad for dinner.
